Each year, the merchants and museums along historic Ledoux Street in Taos, New Mexico USA open their doors for a holiday tradition called "Lighting of Ledoux." So-called because of the numerous farolitos and bonfires illuminating the walkways and patios, the holiday-themed event also features Christmastime lights and festive Southwestern decorations.
In keeping with the seasonal theme, Lighting of Ledoux also includes a visit from Father Winter who listens to the wishes of youngsters and presents them with a small gift at the Harwood Museum, while outside visitors are treated to hot cocoa and delicious soups from area restaurants and volunteers. This year's event took place Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018. Video was shot and edited by Rick Romancito of The Taos News.
